, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in the proposal. can they rally republicans in the house and senate behind the political necessity of putting immigration reform behind them with a path to sit sfwlenship or not? that seems to me to be the rub.
president, and george w. bush was a guy who thought deeply about imuation reform, poverty and trying to craft a middle class agenda for the gop. george w. bush is a figure that many republicans have been running away from. so tell me, do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> i'm sorry, what? i was tweeting. i'm sorry. [laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of the failure to secure victory in iraq early and to have a favorable reckoning -- >> so iraq sank what might have been a successful domestic policy agenda? >> right. well, what i mean is that i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush on what would be efficacious for the country when it lost fa
as well. we will see, shep. >> shepard: republicans are aware george w. bush did it this too. >> he actually did it far more than president obama. who has only used this kind of recess appointment less than 30 times in 40 years. george w. bush used it 141 times over the course of two terms 8 years. that's why jay carney said that this is going to be overturned eventually whether it's by the supreme court. take a listen. >> we respectfully but strongly disagree with this decision. it counters 150 years of precedent. there are over 280 recess appointments made in -- during intrasession recess appointments by democratic and republican administrations alike. >> carney also noting this was just one court that was ruling on one case in washington state. a suit that had been brought against the nlrb. that's why tonight at the white house they are not sweating too much. they believe that they can win at the supreme court and they think in the end this is going to be pushed out, shep. ed henry out in the yard. thank you. penn state university could soon settle several civil claims in the chi
for george w. bush and critter for us. right now, 40% of active duty are women. this could be hundreds of thousand of jobs suddenly would be open to women. am i right in saying this is hublgly significant? >> it's absolutely enormous. the one thing i would say though, the it's not that we don't have women in combat positions. we have women who are ineligible under the former policy, but there really isn't any front line in today's wars. fighting heroically in combat, women who have died in combat. this change just recognizes what's already a reality, frankly. >> david, please be blunt. i know what you have to say is, might offend some people, but this is important. why do you think women in combat is not a good idea? >> i think we need to stress, this is quite an abstract notion. the number of women who will speak and equally is likely to be quite low, but of those who do, i think there are three concerns. the first, the first is is that we are going to see as we have already seen, the expansion roles of women steady downward pressure. strength and endurance requirements in order to ge
party over the past four years since george w. bush left town is roger els. he's run the party, he's run the conservative movement. when roger els decides she's not worth the trouble, then that means that conservatism's moving in a new direction. i talked about what happened this weekend at "the national review" institute's talk. i was really surprised. really surprised by what i heard. and heartened, whether it was bill kristol or john hatoritz. also scott walker who is doing really well up in wisconsin. and all the republicans got up there, and they were saying the same thing. we've got to stop being the stupid party. we've been saying here for six months, we have got to -- and john, i thought, had one of the best points, that we have stifled debate. the conservative movement has stifled debate. and if you go out and you dare to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting at
's name was george w. bush. there is a lot of hypocrisy going on in washington, which i'm sure you're not surprised by it. michael hastings is not only writing for rolling stone and buzzfeed but author of the "sublime and inside story of obama's final campaign." he's also a correspondent here at "the young turks." of course, lindsay moran former clandestine officer for the i c.i.a. great to have you here. let me start with you michael were you surprised at the severity of the republicans response to clinton? >> no. they decided this was going to be an issue that they were going to ride as far as they could. they already got one scalp with susan rice preventing her from becoming secretary of state and including trying to tarnish secretary clinton's image. that first question that secretary clinton we just heard who was asked by the senator that was off base. clinton is right. whether it was a spontaneous demonstration or a planned attack or some sort of combination of both, which is from my understands that that is the case, it's fairly irrelevant. that's the wrong question. rand pa
a third of democrats think george w. bush's supporters probably rigged the election in ohio back in 2004 through voter fraud, including a majority of african-americans. about the same number of republicans, 36%, think obama's supporters did the same thing to win last november although there was no evidence of any cheating or anything, even a machine foul up. think back to nen. more than a third of democrats are part of truther crowd, people who believe president bush knew about the attacks before they happened, as do nearly 60% of african-americans. the difference in the parties is the knowledge base. republicans who know more about the news are actually more likely to believe conspiracy theories fueled by right wing media like fox. danica see know is a political science professor at fair li dl dickinson university. michael, you brought this to our attention. i want to get you as a generalist like me, what do you think this told you that surprised you, this poll? >> well, it reinforced what i have suspected all along, which is that the business model at the far right is predicated on fea
invisible anti-war movement that begged for george w. bush's impeachment in some cases has been silent on this issue but i think the one that's most important is the issue of policy implication because as hawkish as you might be right, or i might be you can sort of say, well forget the human taryn issues, war is war. you could say forget the legal issues. i can justify a lot of things in the time of war and willing to overlook the highway pk sy. the one to care about is plitd call implementation of this. if you have a program that's completely unaccountable, a program whose motto is what drone program, then it makes it really hard when bad actors like iran, like china, perhaps, get their hands on this technology and start to use it irresponsibly and hard for we the united states to go to nato or the u.n. or an international court or allies and say, hell us sanction this group for their illegal drone strikes when our program is completely unaccountable so getting the rules of engagement down codified on paper out in the open is really helpful for us to continue
former presidents bushes, are not obviously -- obviously george h.w. bush has been quite ill for a while. we understand the president has arrived at the capitol building and is having some coffee right now with some of the congressional leaders. he made his traditional visit to st. john's church. they also made a trip to another church yesterday. and among those people to see that up close is bay area visitor alan antonio. >> they were actually attending services this morning. as we waited, they got in and there's nice video of mrs. obama waving with the motor came. >> reporter: they are here with their 9-year-old son who ashed a spot with the people to people -- earned a spot with the people to people leadership to be able to attend and witness the inall -- inauguration. this is their first trip to d.c. they are especially excited, since this is also martin luther king day. i feel so honored to be part of this moment in history. and just -- it represents everything that dr. king fought for. as an african-american woman, i've been teary-eyed since i got off the plane. i've been teary-eye
george w. bush was not elected president, but was close. not that many votes. he was close at that time. he has been a senator all of these years and now going to be the secretary of state. i don't think there is any doubt they will confirm him and he will go smoothly. >> you said relatively smoothly. you think the confirmation is expected? >> yes, the confirmation is expected. it will be overwhelming and a handful who vote against him if that, but he will be different next week when chuck hagel is the nominee for the defense secretary. that will be a lot more brutal as far as the q&a given his controversial positions. i suspect that hagel will be confirmed as well. >> let's talk about the two key personnel moves we are awaiting the announcement of at the white house about to come from the white house. tell us about that. >> mary jo white in new york spent years as the u.s. attorney and she is very, very tough. the president is going to nominate her to head the sec securities and exchange commission. that's going to be a major, major responsibility. this lady is very forceful in going a
assistant to president george w. bush and martin frost is a former texas congressman. thank you both for joining us. >> thank you, thank you. good to be here. >> the current senate makeup. let's take a look at the numbers. 55 democrats, 45 republicans currently. in 2014, 33 seats will be up for re-election. don't go the way of general elections. congressman frost what do you think is going to happen? >> well, first of all, this is a subject i know a fair amount about. i was chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee in 1998, the last time you had the so-called six year itch when the president's party is supposed to lose seats in the sixth year of the president's term. we actually picked up five seats in the house and we broke even in the senate. but what is happening here is that the republican party actually had this same opportunity in 2010 and 2012 and they nominated candidates that were too far to the right and lost some races they shouldn't have lost that happened in missouri and in indiana and in this last election it happened in delaware and colorado and nevad
george w. bush went down in flames after republicans argued it was amnesty for illegal immigrants. senator john mccain says things will be different this time. >> i'll give you a straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatic will i the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. >> this plan would enable illegal immigrants who are already here in the country to gain legal status if they have no criminal background, though they would still have goat in back of the line to gate citizenship. it would also allow foreign workers who have high skills like engineers to come to the country and get visas. the president, we're told by the white house, is pleased with the proposal, and he's going to be making his case for sweeping immigration reform in las vegas tomorrow. >> nancy cordes, thank you. >>> washington is above about last night's "60 minutes" where they saw president obama and c secretary clinton sitting down. they talked about the challenges of putting aside their once hea
choosing to be with his father former president george h.w. bush who recently left the hospital after bronchitis and persistent cough and fever. 2012 mitt romney will not be here. it's not uncommon forerunners up to be no shows. michael dukakis skipped herbert walker bush's and mondale was a no show at the second inaugural in 85 which is the last time the constitutionally required date fell on a sunday and a second ceremonial oath was done. >> 40s tomorrow and showers in the afternoon perhaps flurries for folks going to the ball at president obama's second inaugural. carl cameron, fox news. >>> thank you. still ahead the uncertain future of gun. >> the president's second term. stay with us. ÷÷ >> look at that. these beautiful shots of washington are one of the major up sides of the events going on here. not only do you get to see the country come together and celebrate our democracy but boy oh boy the capitol never looked better. much of the world is following the deadly terrorist scenes that happened in algeria. the death toll expect to do climb in the coming days. >> algerian se
that's one of the key things that this party has to do. you do it quickly. george w. bush always did it when he was president. somebody comes out and says something stupid like the congressman from georgia, paul brown, a couple days ago said barack obama, he didn't follow the u.s. constitution. he followed the soviet constitution. it doesn't cost republican leaders anything to speak out and say, that is a stupid and offensive remark. it offends swing voters. let's talk about issues that are going to balance the budget, save medicare and get americans back to work. we've got to speak out against the stupidities. bobby says we've got to stop being the stupid party, and you start by disciplining your most stupid members. >> joe, that's right. bobby jindal said last night that the party needs to stop insulting the intelligence of the american people. joe, he's going to use his platform as chairman of the republican governors association, also as one of the most obvious of the 2016 candidates to make these points. he said government needs to be much smaller. he said that we need about hal
. we saw the global presence put together by jim baker and george h.w. bush and the success of that in the engagement of the world's nations. but subsequent to that, um, we have seen a completely different scene, and that is what i would describe as the two alarmers or the three alarmers. and we've got about a dozen fires popping up here in different parts of the world. and all of a sudden you have people who don't have that previous, a lot of people in congress who don't have that previous reference or who basically have come to the conclusion the world has changed, and we really can't afford nor do we have the public support for global engagement. and so when you go back home and talk to people back home, they say, you know, why do we give so much foreign awed when it literally -- aid when it literally is like saying, you know, you need to diet and lose a lot of walking and say, well, i'm going to go get a haircut, and that'll solve the problem. the amount of foreign aid and the amount of foreign presence now is shrinking to the point where it's relatively insignificant co
immigration reform. president bush didn't do that, president george w. bush did not accomplish that. that could be it. and then the supreme court dealing with the gay marriage issue. the courts could handle that, and that may be taken out of the president's hands. >> and big on climate change, as well. >> and a lot of symbolism, especially the inauguration happening on mlk day. but you were in the crowd. what exactly did you see, what are some of the sights and sounds? >> reporter: you know, paula, i was fortunate enough to be only about 75 to 100 yards away, which is a lot closer than a lot of people got. and the crowd was very excited and very respectful. there were a lot of young people. the biggest cheers came when he mentioned gay marriage. the young people surrounding me just erupted in cheers and so you could tell that that is going to be a big issue, that he could take on the next four years. he got the biggest support from that from this crowd. >> that comment was extremely telling. he put it in the same line as the women's voting rights and with the civil rights act, in te
of the electorate. obviously john mccain has talked about this since seven. george w. bush was very involved in this. jeb bush is speaking very strongly in favor of this type of citizenship. the trouble they are likely to run into is in the house of representatives, right. >> reporter: one would think so. the problem with this bill for the critics in the house is that it is, call it what you will, whatever name you use it's an amnesty bill in the sense that people who came here illegally and who are here now will be able to attain a provisional legal status. that won't make them citizens, that will be a much more come ph*ebg complex, they get to come out of the shadows and be here legally and work here legal leave. a lot of people will say that is amnesty. amnesty is a word that fires up people who were really reoccupied and concerned about this issue. this is one of these issues where intensity matters. you look at that big number, 66% in favor of a path for citizenship for these people. how many people are really passionate about it? it's hard to know. a great many of those who will oppose it are
was in 2007. the bill pushed by president george w. bush went down in flames after republicans argued it amounted to amnesty for illegal immigrants. gop senator john mccain says things will be different this time. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. >> this plan would enable illegal immigrants who have no criminal background to gain temporary legal status so they could stay in the country even as they get on the back of the line for citizenship. it would also allow highly skilled foreign workers like engineers to be able to get visas to come to this country more easily. the white house says the president is pleased with the proposal, and he's going to be making his case for comprehensive immigration reform in a speech in las vegas tomorrow. norah and charlie? >> nancy cordes thank you. >>> washington is abuzz about last night's "60 minutes," where they saw president oba
of staff for president george w. bush and the 41st president of the united states, texas a & m university, mr. andy card joins us. as chief of staff, you have to set an agenda for the president. what is the challenge with the second term as opposed to the first? >> first of all, today is a day of celebration. yesterday was as well. but today will be the real public day of celebration and i'll be celebrating it, too. president obama is my president, too. i look forward to him taking the oath of office. i want to hear that inaugural speech. but i can tell you, there is going to be a lot of heavy lifting that has to take place in order for the president to be success envelope a second term. that's when the blues start to set in, when you realize how tough the job is and it's not just about the issues that you can anticipate meeting. it's the ones that you don't anticipate that you have to meet. and so i hope he moves from being an i president. he was very much an i president during his first term. i, i, i, i, i. the second term had better be a we. i'm not talking about a campaign slogan. yes
publication. john dickerson was credited with being the guy who knocked george w. bush off his heels the most times during his presidency. it's not surprising to me, though, that there is a conflict of interest here. do we remember during the election when there were reporters caught off mic before mitt romney made his statement? cbs news reporter, jan crawford, was one of those reporters. so clearly there is a problem at cbs of there being biased in their reporting. but as we've seen throughout the years, it's not surprising. >> steve: so this is clearly, in your estimation, an example, glaring example of liberal media bias? >> i think it is. and at least with mr. dickerson, he is honest about, in his biothat he's work for slate and the cbs political director. but -- >> steve: how do you do both? >> that's the question. i mean, if cbs is going to portray themselves as a middle of the road, unbiased news source, then it seems a little strange that you would have someone who is writing regularly for a far left publication, as the political director. i think that we saw that with the election r
. well, why? that's not what bill clinton did. that's not what george w. bush did. that's not what ronald reagan did. if you look at the exit polls after the november election, the people of the united states said we want both parties, all sides to get together and get something done in washington, d.c. our point was how can this guy who is working as an unbiased political director for cbs -- i mean, you tune to cbs, you want it unpolitical; right? right down the middle. how can he work for this far-left blog as well as their chief correspondent. john, pick a lane. which is it? down the middle or way left? >>brian: it looks like he was giving the president advice and he has a point of view. and i thought he was supposed to not have one. meanwhile, 22 minutes before the hour. >>steve: the coldest temperatures of the season bearing down on the midwest and northeast. the coldest place in the country yesterday was minnesota, 36 below at one spot. maria molina is tracking the weather. maria, i hear it is going to warm up in minnesota, up into the 20's in the next couple of days but it is bitte
to raise the debt limit under george w. bush who was president then, barak obama said can't do it. sorry. it would be unpatriotic. >> he said america has a debt problem. i intend to -- >> steve: here we are on the precipice of his second term. do we imagine that anything is going to be different than the first term where he ran up the tab? >> no. i think that's pretty clear and if you look at the national debt from president to president, bush was a big spender. got it up to 7 trillion. but obama at 16.4 trillion and at this inauguration people are saying, no, he's not a spender. it's all bush. >> steve: of course. >> this is unsustainable. this is the big crisis of our time. >> steve: what's the statute of limitations on blaming bush run? >> never. there is no statute of limitations on murder or blaming bush. >> steve: all right. john stossel. check him out tonight on the fox business channel at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. thank you very much. all right. straight ahead, michelle malkin is coming up and says our kids are getting dumber and the president is to blame for lowering our standards
to be asked yesterday. i'm not sure we got really to the core. but i will say, carl, if you think george w. bush didn't have calls for his impeachment, we need to get you on google a little more often. >> not in the congress. a few. >> before we get to women in combat, also, no matter what, rand paul was bringing up a point. you may not have liked the way he brought it up, but if an ambassador in a hot zone cannot communicate with the secretary of state on the issue of security, there's something to be looked at. that's a big problem. >> there's a legitimate congressional investigation here. all i'm saying is that the notion that we have to put everything into a wildly partisan and ideological context instead of real fact finding is a failure of our politics. and this is one more failure of our politics instead of a reasoned investigation. >> i agree with carl. >> it's time to end the political theater and get to some really important fact finding. >> but as congresswoman harman said, it is, in fact, theater. do you remember when the democrats made condoleezza rice read the title on the me
%. that ties the highest ever with george w. bush in the fourth year of his presidency it was also 76%. >> this is not a president who is uniting the country. frankly i think the last election shows he doesn't feel he needs to. he has got a hardened constituenciy. voting public in any case you watched his speech. on monday here is what i am doing if you don't like it, tough there. there was one passing line about reach. and even that wasn't. >> he said the word together a lot. together we move forward. together. certainly republicans after hearing it said that it felt like he had drawn a line in the sand for very progressive ideas most progressive they had heard in decades this has been the theme of the administration past year. can't get it through congress go by constitutional order. this constitutional thing is silly. we have agenda and we will enact it whether you like it or not. >> ronald reagan once said government is the problem. so is the current president doing the opposite in trying to expand government. lots of people talked about that after his inaugural address as well. w
reagan was president and george h.w. bush was running and so was pat robertson. president reagan didn't endoargs his own -- didn't endorse his own vice president until robertson dropped out of the race. i don't think joe biden is going to run. >> you don't think so? >> i don't think so. >> john: i would like him to. >> he will be 74. >> he will do whatever he wants. >> i think he will be a wonderful statesman like jimmy carter was. >> john: he will be very useful. he'll do public speaking. he will do whatever he wants. he's such a powerful advocate for progressive causes. to be honest, it is gate everyone is putting a laurel wreath around hillary's head. i think dennis kucinich kept a lot of the democrats honest when they were running in 2008 and 2004. and i wouldn't be broken hearted if elizabeth warren ran against hillary. i think if the democrats give it to her then that's going to be really kind of a drag and disappointing. i help to is a bit more interesting. >> yep, i do too. all right. it is time to take a break. so let's do that now. >> john: when we come back, i with a tonigh
